2014 Vintage. Great beer. It reminded me most of Hanssens Artisinaal Oude Gueze, one of my favorite all time beers, with one major distinction that drew down my rating for it:

Look: Look was extremely rustic, straw colored and hazy, great job. The carbonation, however, was comprised of very large bubbles that appeared to be injected as opposed to the product of fermentation. (I'm used to seeing a much smaller bubble structure for this caliber of beer). The lacing was a bit lacking. I don't expect much in the way of lacing from the style, but it was less elegant than other styles, probably due to the large bubbles.

Smell: Near perfect, mouthwatering tartness.

Taste: Puckeringly sour, which overpowered the mild barnyard funk, oakey, some grapes, apples. There's a lot of oak in the flavor, and a sliver of oak barrel ended up in my mouth; I actually thought I might be upset for a second, but then thought that was kind of cool.

Mouthfeel: Superb dry finish. Unfortunately this beer lost carbonation in a hurry and fell very flat. I wonder if there was a bottling issue here.

Overall: Think extra sour, but less funky Hanssens Artisinaal Oude Geuze. While this was a fantastically great, rustic weird beer, I'd rather spend my money on Hanssens, unfortunately. Maybe if the carbonation issue is fixed I'd buy another, but it's a pricy one.
